Be thankful for this hilarious Hunger Games spoof (VIDEO)
Here's something else to add to your list of things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is the latest flick to get a dub-over by the folks at the Bad Lip-Reading YouTube channel, and it's everything.
Just in time to save you from Thanksgiving family awkwardness, you can let your eyes feast on a different sort of (hilarious) awkwardness, like a lot of weird singing, panting, humming, awkward chanting and, of course, Gale trying to get Katniss to make out — all set to your favorite scenes from Catching Fire.
It's enough to make you want to ditch Thanksgiving altogether and just queue up The Hunger Games on Netflix, but since you should probably spend the day with family, this will have to do. Don't worry — it's short, so if you can only sneak away into the bathroom to give it a watch, just under five minutes won't look too suspicious. Better yet, get the whole family in on it and laugh together.
In case you can't watch this right now, here are the highlights:
Gale telling Katniss she would love to make out:
Both: [Awkward humming/singing/chanting/panting]
Gale: We shouldn't make out at my sick party.
Katniss: …I didn't want to.
Gale: No. You'd love it.
Creepy little girl:
Creepy Little Girl: I'm gonna crush your trachea in your sleep.
Katniss: (Horrified look)
Katniss and Peeta start a band:
Haymitch: Listen, you guys are gonna start a band, and I'm gonna help you. Something like a future sound. Like cool xylophone with drum power.
Peeta: We'll have to think of a name for us.
Haymitch: Yeah, that's right, so let's go with Jimmy Toucan and the Flip Out.
Peeta: But that sucks.
Katniss: It's really bad.
Haymitch: OK, well, let's hear your pick.
Haymitch: Hmm… OK. It's pretty jammin'. It's got a good vibe.
Katniss: They may as well just give us album of the year right now.
Peeta: Sounds good. Let's do it.
Take a break from that turkey, because some things are more important.
